The discussers suggest an alternative interpretation of the shear wave velocity versus stress data, taking into consideration packing density and void ratio correction functions f(e). The link between the writers’ and discussers’ approaches is identified in the following analysis, which augments the discussion presented in the original manuscript (p. 597)
